Hello sweet friends! Thanks for stopping by! As you can see from this title… I’m updating y’all on my weight loss journey at the beginning of tmy third week instead of the end of my second week…. the reason for the change?… we’ll week two was a total bust. I was lazy, I was unsuccessful, and I didn’t accomplish any of my goals… (sad face.)
I’m pretty disappointed with myself and have no idea why I let myself have such a bad week. I didn’t go to the gym (not even once), I didn’t fully track my food and macros, and I honestly didn’t eat as clean as I should have. I kept making excuses until I realized it was Friday and I hadn’t achieved a darn thing. It sucks and I’m mad at myself, but oh well! All I can do now is get serious and down to business this week!! I’m using my lack of motivation last week as reason to give my 100% this week! I’m writing down my goals, I’m going to pray hard, and I’m going to be better than last week! I REFUSE to let one bad week ruin my journey. So here are my goals for this week!
Week THREE goals:
1. Drink a gallon of water a day.
I finally bought a gallon of water on Sunday and I am taking it with me everywhere I go and I am making sure that I drink a whole gallon each day.
It is challenging to actually drink a whole gallon every day, but it is so necessary and so so important!
Here’s what I did to stay on track throughout the day with my gallon:
That’s right! Mon-fri at 5:30 am is the goal for me! I plan to do at least an hour of cardio two days this week, and the rest of the week is like to find a good HIIT cardio plan that I can do! I also will be doing some weight training as followed:
FRI: legs/ glutes
3. Meal prep and count my macros
This week I’ll be meal prepping all my meals. I’ll also be tracking my macros and logging everything I eat and drink.
For breakfast I plan to have oatmeal and two boiled eggs or oatmeal and Greek yogurt
For lunch and dinner, I will have one cup of broccoli, one cup of green beans, and 5oz of protein (either pork chop or fish)
I will update y’all this Saturday and include more detail on my food for the week! 🙂
If I get a chance, I’m hoping to hit up a yoga class on Saturday morning, but apart from that, I want to have a good, 20 minute stretching routine in the evening after work. I’ll combine some of my favorite yoga poses and some good stretches that I learned from the military. Stretching is so important y’all, but I honestly neglect it way too much :/
5. Drink more tea- cut out some coffee.
I loooooove coffee… but the bad part about that is that I love my coffee sweet and with lots of cream and sugar… I never realized how many calories and sugar I consume just from my morning cup (sometimes cupS) of coffee.
I have some delicious Teami Blends “energy” tea that I’m going to have in the morning once I’m at work.

Like I said before, I’m not going to let last weeks failures shape a new week where I can reach my goals!
We all will have our setbacks and off days! What matters is you get back into the game and keep working hard!
Come back on Saturday to see how my week went and what goals I crushed and what o struggled with!
